Study on Stress-Strain Relationship of FRP-Confined Concrete Filled Steel Tubes
FRP-confined concrete filled steel tube may fully use the character of FRP-confined concrete and concrete filled steel tube. Based on the analysis of existing experimental data, the formula of ultimate bearing capacity of FRP-confined concrete filled steel tube is proposed. The mechanical behavior of FRP-confined concrete filled steel tube is mainly related to the equivalent confinement effect coefficient before the rupture of FRP. Based on the static equilibrium condition, the equivalent conversion section is adopted; taking as main parameter, the simplified stress-strain model of FRP-confined concrete filled steel tube is established. The predictions of the model agree well with test data.
